Oval Space – Aufgang
Following on from Oval Space Music’s memorable Live launch with Cobblestone Jazz, the team behind the Bethnal Green venue join forces with London’s dollop to present for the very first time in the UK, Aufgang.
The kamikaze trio, made up of Francesco Tristano, Rami Khalifé & Aymeric Westrich have been creating and performing their acoustic, electronic crossover sound since 2005, fuelled by different influences and nourished by an impetuous flow of improvisation. Considered one of the most talented pianists of his generation, Francesco Tristano, Rami and Aymeric create an organic and fully immersive stage experience. “It is neither acoustic techno nor electronically seasoned classical music”, stipulates Francesco, going on to say “the piano is also a machine, it’s a big box with a mechanism inside”. By using his pianos as machines and confronting them with other machines such as Aymeric‘s drums, Aufgang manage to generate music that is as surprising as it is powerful. As the trio announce the release of Istiklaliya, the sophomore album out on InFiné on May 13th, they demonstrate that today more than ever Aufgang deliver a unique musical path. Their stage show features two classically trained pianists battling it out with a live drummer and electronic loops which has floored crowds at festivals across Europe. The respective influence of the three musicians makes way for a whole new sound; unclassifiable, contemporary and incredibly striking. Make sure you get your tickets below.
